Lonesome Cowboy Bill
The Velvet Underground Lyrics


Lonesome Cowboy Bill
Rides the rodeo.
Lonesome Cowboy Bill,
You got to see him yodel "Ay-hee-ho!"

Lonesome Cowboy Bill
Rides the rodeo.
Ever since he was a little lad,
Loves the rodeo.
Bucking broncs, yeah, sipping wine,
You got to see him go,
And all the ten-gallon girls
Love to hear him yodel "Ay-hee-ho!"

Because
Lonesome Cowboy Bill
Rides the rodeo.
Lonesome Cowboy Bill,
You got to see him yodel "Ay-hee-ho!"

Oh, Lonesome Cowboy Bill,
You still ride the rodeo.
Up 'round the Colorado shore,
Down by the Ohio.
Sometimes even New Orleans,
Down by the Mardi Gras,
And all the ten-gallon girls
Love to hear him yodel "Ay-hee-ho!"

He's Lonesome Cowboy Bill,
He rides the rodeo.
Just a Lonesome Cowboy Bill,
You got to see him yodel "Ay-hee-ho!"

You got to see him in the rodeo
When he's ridin', goin' too darn fast.
You got to hear the people
Scream and shout

They call him,
Lonesome Cowboy Bill
He's a
Lonesome Cowboy Bill

He goes...
Lonesome Cowboy Bill
Rides the rodeo.
Lonesome Cowboy Bill,
You got to see him yodel "Ay-hee-ho!"

I said,
You got to see him yodel "Ay-hee-ho!"
Oh he's a Lonesome Cowboy Bill,
Lonesome Cowboy Bill

I know some of you may find it weird, but this in my top 5 favorite VU songs. It never fails to make me smile.

StraightTongue

I like how VU refers to loneliness in their ways through their songs. This song has a positivity to it that really cool

StraightTongue

This is a legendary tune. So many times on an airplane looking down smiling as we took off.... Rock and roll

MikeDindu

When a rock n roll band randomly makes one of the best country songs ever

Classic Pinball

TVU was always trying different things, even on their pop-oriented album it seems

David Chavers

Bass player Doug Yule sings this one, though l always assumed it was Lou Reed.

Leonard Dallas

@Led Head 1975 OK, I was wrong. He left before the album was released.

Leonard Dallas

@Al R Lou Reed left the band while they were recording this album

Al R

Iuy Yui
